Fremont boxes winning trifecta

So it wasn’t in the exact order. The Race and Sports committee at the Fremont stood alone in a panel of 28 books across Las Vegas to correctly pick the Tri-box at the Kentucky Derby.

"I guess we’re committed to playing Funny Cide again in the Preakness," said Brad Walthers, race and sports director at the downtown casino. "I thought it was a good race. The fractions went well, it seemed too quick for Peace Rules. The stretch run appeared set up for Empire Maker, but Funny Cide ran a nice race."

None of the 28 bookies in the GamingToday consensus had Funny Cide either first or second.
